Description

I have used a pattern from a Scandinavian sewing magazine 07/2012 for this dress.
I like the batwing sleeves and it’s very comfy since it’s made of viscose jersey. I thought it was nice to use the black jersey for the v neck in front. I was wearing the dress last night when we had our summer concert with our choir and I think it’s great to use for a nice summer eve ☼

    Really outstanding. Reminds me of Bali though I have never been there. Your expertise in tackling jersey is amazing. Nice matching pedi colors ;-)

    Are you really from Norway? …. Hmmm… This tropical garden on your dress surely increases the tempreture around you for some degrees:-))) Wonderful!

      Yeah! You are certainly right :) but I have to say this spring has been very unusual for oss, and we have had a lot of sun and nice weather from March and up to now! So I think you probably should have a nice holiday here :-))

    Very nice. The black neck band really brings focus to the neckline. You look ready for a tropical vacation.

    Such a nice fabric, with the big print it needs a big dress, so you made the best of it. The black neckline is perfect too!
